NI working with Cardiff University on non linear rf analysis

Test and measurement specialist National Instruments has announced a joint initiative with Cardiff University to develop advanced non linear network analysis systems.

The work is intended to reduce the measurement time of non linear rf signals. The systems combine NI PXI rf instruments and NI LabVIEW software, along with waveform engineering tools from Mesuro.

"We used NI system design tools to build a research test bed taking non linear microwave waveforms in less than four months," said Professor Johannes Benedikt, research director for Cardiff University. "Early results show orders of magnitude test time improvements, enabling researchers to create non linear circuit models in a fraction of the time than previously required."

National Instruments has also announced its acquisition over NMDG, which specialises in high frequency stimulus response and large scale network analysis measurements.

The company said the takeover formed part of its continued vision to provide rf and microwave design engineers with access to its technology from initial design through production test.
